"As fast as copy could be filed at the tower, it was flashed through the air almost instantaneously to the Star Wireless Station. Messages were transmitted at the rate of 40 words per minute and not a hitch occurred. This enterprise has proved remarkably successful."The above facts will give some idea of the marvellous growth of the DeForest System. This, however, is just the commencement; other installations will follow just as quickly as the orders can be filled. It is safe to say that within a year the revenue accruing to the American DeForest Company from this source alone will surprise the most enthusiastic stockholder.
